korea. tonight, a u.s. official tells cnn, there are early signs the koreans are not in total control of the device. but a north korean government-run tv, the news anchor was giddy with excitement. keeping them honest. pyongyang reportedly spent more than $1 billion on their missile program this year alone, money they could feed a lot of hungry, starving people in north korea. but while much of the world is talking about missiles tonight, there is a crime against humety occurring in that country. a crime that receives very little attention. as i said, some 150,000 people are believed to be doing hard labor on the brink of starvation, in a network of hidden gulags. it doesn't house just those who have been accused of political crimes, however. these prisons house their entire families, grandparents, parents, children. it's a system called three generations of punishment. imagine if you were accused of a crime and sent to a concentration camp. but to truly punish you, they would send your parents and your children. three generations of your family simply disappeared. the most notorious
are ubiquitous parts of our communications system. they came about because of the use of unlicensed spectrum. the lot advances the use in several ways of allowing the fcc to use existing white spaces in the broadcasts than for unlicensed use, gives the sec the authority to reorganize the existing white spaces to maximize their value and perhaps most important it allows the fcc to create guard bans in the repurchased broadcast television spectrum that may be used for new unlicensed services like super why 5. this is smart spectrum policies that recognizes the increasingly interdependent nature of licensed and unlicensed operations. the bands will enhance the value of the spectrum to be auctioned by protecting it from interference and create a nationwide ban to prime spectrum that can be used for new innovation in unlicensed use. that is why i am pleased the fcc's proposed rules are faithful to congressional intent to promote innovation in unlicensed use. second, the law preserves the fcc's ability to use auction rules to promote competition in the wireless industry while insuring no single ca
in the assault on the u.s. consulate there. while susan rice was not responsible for security of the consulate, she did go on sunday shows and talk about the u.s. response there and she has been accused of deliberately mischaracterizing what happened. all sides -- or the white house has adamantly insisted and she has insisted that she in no way deliberately mischaracterized what happened. she was reading from unclassified talking points and nonetheless this has been caught up in a back and forth and, wolf, if i may, i'm going to read from part of her statement, her letter to the president and what she wrote in part, i am now convinced that the confirmation process will be lengthy, disruptive, and costly to you and to our most pressing national and international priorities. that tradeoff is simply not worth it to our country. the secretary of state may never be politicized. she says, i look forward to building on progress in your second term which seems to leave the door open to the possibility she could serve in the administration in the second term and according to my sources there has been s
all accounts, she's represented us very well and very effectively. >> now, ambassador, let's be real clear. what happened that day was that ambassador rice went on several sunday morning talk shows and told the nation what, in fact, she was told by intelligence sources that day. and repeated what she was told. >> and that's really the way most administrations work. you need to have a unity of people speaking in public. you don't want to have people speaking across from each other. and what happens before those sunday shows, al, as you know very well, is that people agree on talking points. what should the officials say on major issues. had any other senior administration official been out that day, five days after benghazi, they would have more than likely said what ambassador rice did. i never thought it was fair to say that she should have sole responsibility of that. she did not have line of authority for security for our consulate in benghazi. that wasn't her job as ambassador. i thought giving her the outs, as i just said, and giving her her very good service in the obama admini
at the park and ride under 101. there used to water creeping up and back here, but this is higher than the usual high. king tides happen once a month when the sun and moon pulls are lined but these high tides are the highest of the year. the king tide coincide was big winter storms. water levels in some areas will be 10 feet above normal. they do recede quickly. with extreme low tides as well. sebastian figures his trees will not float away. he's looked up high tide predictions and planning accordingly. >> trees are still a foot above the water. i'm from holland and i know about water management. >> he is from holland and knows a little bit about water manment and will be putting that knowledge to use through friday. possibly saturday. then, again, the king tides return in mid january. >> we've been out and about today and the weather was spectacular. >> it's been cooperating. leigh glaser is here with a look at the accu-weather forecast it was touch and go this morning because there is a weak cold front moving through. lots of activity moved on out, colder air mass settling in. still
of facilitating a station and maintaining local access. and in terms of facilitating other land use activities in the area. those include the pc but go into a little more detail. we also included in this package of improvement and city project for the connector road a vacation of the northeastern portion of quint street. that is in the diagram, the red area. that area actually operates two areas of properties as they work to plan the relocation of those digesters. this package in the connector road project intends to really maximize that compatibility and facilitate that process that we've heard support for. finally, the purpose of this request is to really iron out some of those final questions and issues that the community has raised that we haven't been able to answer quite yet given the phase of design we're at. there are two pieces of recommendations. the first is to recommend support for cal train to proceed with design of their option one, the berm option for the bridge replacement. that includes allowing them to work with the schedules and coordination with the connector road project t

. >> all of us are humbled by the virus, how systemic it's become. how do you get your hands around that? for me it's top down and bottom up. we are authority figures and what we do for our children and that's care, but we need to empower them to become the leaders they are waiting to become. this notion of youth adult partnership is esoteric in its term but on the ground how do you operationalize it, those things in the public school who are working so hard to meet the required mandates. schools are driven by mandates, academic achievement, achievement, enrollment. but the conditions in which the virus grows, if you follow the metaphor that bullying is a systemic virus, then the environment has to change so the virus cannot grow and the only way the environment changes is if youth and adults begin to speak with one voice about changing the social norms that allows it to happen. it makes sense to most of us, you have it khaifrpb the social norms. we must educate. but we must go beyond thinking more rigor will get us better achievement. we have to remember a school is a community and
more danger than the issue because every countries use military force, especially air force, to respond on the airspace incursion. on the other hand, the japanese coast guard is dealing with china's lower air force ships. so i think this action will involve military force into this dispute. so there is a possibility to escalate both countries' actions. >> quite a dangerous situation. do you think china could take further action over the islands? >> i don't think so. but it is very difficult to find out which level decided to let the aircraft invading japanese airspace. but once happen, this kind of issue, the china's leaders or headquarters must support this kind of action. but we cannot see any kind of change of china's leaders intention for the senkaku islands. the president has already started the campaign to get rid of the corruption. he doesn't want to escalate any other dispute with this campaign. so i think it's danger to take action by simplistic thinking way. i hope both japan and china, dealing with issue very calmly. >>> authorities in north korea have provided a boost for th

. the foundation of the maritime business is the services that attract boats and ships and keeps us going in business. but commuter ferries and excursions are really kind of the core business of the port's maritime sector. if you take a look at it. we average, we carry on average 3.2 million ferry passengers annually these are commuter passengers moving between home and work expense and is we transport over 3 million excursion passengers annual low people looking at sites alcatraz and golden gate bridge. and then we see international cruise ships that alleged violentors to and from the port and crews members aboard those ships speak to our ferry services, you're, our ferry services operate chiefly out of the downtown ferry terminal behind the ferry building. they also operate out of peer 39, and 41 in the north. the gate b number downtown ferry terminal is for the north bound lanes such as value lay hough and gate e is for ala immediate a eoakland and island services blue and gold fleet does the operation and is the maintenance of all of these vessels and they will be describing that

and in each of the domains think of something in all of them in the last 24 hours that you had to use, that you had to activate in relationships with the co-workers or spouses and these are different life skills and there is the area of responsible decision making and comes into play when you have to figure out what to do when you have a problem, so you can probably just look at that and "oh yes, i see where the connections would be" and i would like to kind of point out because we are talking about bullying today -- one of the things i love -- i don't know if rosylyn is still in the room but she talked about a specific example. this is an example of what a teacher should be able to do if she sees something in the hallway and described this whole process and when i was listening to that i was thinking oh my gosh in every category that person would have to be very socially emotionally competent. you need the awareness to know something is going on. you need that empathy to compel you do something about t you need the management skills to approach that situation calmly and not be ove
rates. and it's the same story you heard on us selling to low cost bonds. to repayors it's a timely difference of when we receive money. it allows us to smooth out and have lower rate increases over the next five years. on the other hand we won't have interest earnings on the portion no longer outstanding. it's a trade off. but contractually wholesale customers are able and have the right to do this under the contract. before you is the prepayment and collection agreement and the tax certificate. because that's integral on the tax exempt borrowing that bawsca will be doing on the proceeds. the use of proceeds is a commitment that we make in the representation of the tax covenant. it says that we will use these for eligible tax proceeds. we have plenty of items that you approved. and they include our capital project expenditures that are appropriated to large part. and includes the repayment of bonds. by using these proceeds to repay bond service it allows low increases for rate payors. this gives a look at what the rate increases would be with and without the prepayment. you see the

vulnerable to radiation, so for them, alternatives to radiation based screening need to be, you know, used either in lieu of or in addition to and that's a very personal decision and a medical decision, but that added risk for those women who are already at higher risk from the very -- the detect is a really important issue, so does that answer your question? >> [inaudible]. >> awesome, okay, so schools, i've talked about some changes that can happen at schools but the reason we wanted to highlight this is because we can talk about federal laws, about state laws and it can feel daunting to think about getting involved in legislation at that level, although we try to make that easy for most to do by signing on to online actions and stuff, but for parents with kids, changing policies at schools can be an accessible thing, joining pta's or talking to the school board about having integrated pest management so kids aren't exposed to pesticides on playgrounds, that's been successful. there's a huge movement to get safer, healthier foods into schools and they just revised the school lunch guidel
is intentionally trying to take us over this cliff. >> he is prepared to negotiate but it is not a tenable position to say that the tax cuts for the wealthy should be made permanent. it is not gonna happen. >> as for future talks between the president and house speaker bain per, so far, none are planned and all of this comes as our new nbc news/wall street journal poll shows 70% of democrats and 59% of republicans want their party's leaders to come to an agreement, even if it means not sticking to long-held position on taxes and entitlements. joining me now, democratic congresswoman gwen moore of wisconsin, a member of the house budget committee. thanks for joining me. >> thanks for having me, tam rochblt. >> we got word from aides, speaker boehner, going to ohio tomorrow, whether that might impact communication with the president concerning the fiscal cliff, the speaker says ohio has both cell phone service and airports so if the president wants to talk or meet, it won't be a problem at all. at this point, nothing is scheduled. what does that mean to you about the talks at this point? >> my read i
, it's great to say we should all use glass but we know what's used out there is plastic, and it's reusable, you can come up with all these ways to avoid it but there's plastic everywhere and it's accessible and cheap, so plastic wrap gets used a lot, there aren't that many alternatives that can do what plastic wrap does, i don't use a lot of it and it's harder to store things long-term and same question applies for the freezer, it's easier to put things in a freezer bag. >> so, a little tip for that is i do admit to using plastic bags, i reuse them and if something is not -- i don't use them for liquids and if something isn't somehow already kind of like a solid or whatever, parchment paper around that and then use the plastic just as the thing that keeps it from leak-proof or if i'm taking soup to work, i have my soup in a glass jar but i will throw it in plastic because i don't want it all over my backpack and there's also more stainless steel options which are a little more expensive but that's a one-time investment, just don't lose it, so a box of plastic bags, it lasts me l

was levi strauss. now, 140 years later 450 million pairs of jeans are sold every year in the u.s. alone. now, you would think with that volume, the manufacturing process would be totally mechanized but actually a lot of it is still done by hand. a typical pair of jeans is made from 15 individual pieces, someone has to oversee cutting all of those pieces and sew them together and as you can see in this discovery channel documentary, the seams get ironed out flat then the zipper and the rivets are attached and finally, because who wants new-looking jeans they get distressed. workers put them on giant rubber legs that get blown up like balloons and then they give some rough treatment to them so they really look like they came out of a california mine. now, that discovery channel documentary might show satisfied workers happily doing their jobs but the truth is that kind of work is really hard. it requires a lot of tough manual labor. and for that, american companies have gone overseas and specifically to bangladesh. that c
